Q. My puppy was just treated by Vet for tapeworm and is vomiting. He was also licking and chewing my older dog that we treated with frontline earlier.

Answered By

A. It could be a reaction to the tapeworm medication in which case that isn't to much of a problem. If it is because he has licked the frontline that could potentially be a problem. I would recommend calling you emergency vet especially if there are any signs of muscle twitching.
